just had an email from u2.com saying that my order has been cancelled due to change in content and pricing but i'm pretty sure that for a few days when this was first announced it has the content up on the site and it was exactly the same?

The content may have been the same but i'm sure the pricing wasn't.  ;D

What was the price when you pre-ordered?

Great, amazon.de has canceled all orders too.

They've got a price guarantee, which promises you won't have to pay more.

Amazon.de behält sich das Recht vor, die Vorbesteller-Preisgarantie jederzeit und ohne vorherige Ankündigung ändern oder einstellen zu können, ohne dass dadurch eine Haftung seitens Amazon begründet wird.

But if they don't feel like owning up to their promise they won't have to.  ::)

Amazon.de cancelled my 42 euro pre-order bargain ! But surely pricing error is their mistake as product content is the same and reasonably could have been offered at price i was offered - so legally, have these people a leg to stand on ?!!   ??? ::)

I guess they have the right to cancel orders, though!

I asked about it at my local FYE music-video store and they have it listed as $130 US. I'll be scouring the ads for discounts as I won't buy online. Less of a hassle. Best Buy usually has the best price.

I feel for those whose pre-orders were cancelled. :-\

I actually don't feel too much for those who had their orders cancelled, i'd be slightly PO'd if I paid 2x the price.

That being said, I just saw something on a US station and they had a lawyer in there talking about if a store advertises a price and its incorrect, do they have to honour it?  He said actually NO, they don't.  However, if a business makes a habit of it and its used to lure customers into the store, it enters into the realm of false advertising, and then it becomes a legal issue.

I think maybe part of the reason retailers were able to cancel the pre-orders is because the contents were never announced.  If they had announced the contents early on and it was the same as what they're doing now, then that'd be a problem.  As it is, people pre-ordered a product that technically never came to exist.  So like any order with product that never comes to exist, the order was canceled.  But since the description was generic, I guess people expected their order to be honored regardless of what the content ended up being.

Orders have been cancelled as the contents has been changed. I pre-ordered from both u2 and amazon.com and both orders have been cancelled. The Blu-ray disc was never advertised as being in the original listings, hence there reason to can any cheap pre-orders.

But it's different for the orders from amazon.de.  Here's what it is called from my confirmation email from them:

Quote
"360 Degrees Tour - Ltd. Super Deluxe Edt. 2 DVDs + BluRay + Bonus (360° At The Rose Bowl)"
U2; DVD; EUR 35,27

They just said in their retraction email that it was a pricing mistake, not a change in content.

Other people getting a good deal is nothing to get "PO'd" about.  If someone finds a good deal and I don't, good for them and unfortunate for me.

If I order the exact same item from the exact same store and someone paid half as much as me without getting it at a legitimate sale price, yeah, I'd be PO'd.

I'm not happy about the order cancellation, and I am taking it further as I don't think it's  very fair or acceptable.
Lets's see how I get on !!
